About the Charity

Cheque for £4000
This is what we do best!

Run by volunteers NPTCC is a local charity that helps local people. Our aim is to help with the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer. We raise funds to purchase equipment for local hospitals in Neath Port Talbot, Singleton, Morriston and Bridgend.

A Management Committee comprised entirely of volunteers administers the Charity, and fixed overheads are minimal. The Charity does not pay any salaries, wages or honoraria, and has no assets that incur maintenance costs, thus maximizing the funds available to meet its objectives.

Since its beginnings NPTCC has raised over £750,000 to purchase vitally needed equipment in the local area. Each request for help is different so we consult with the hospitals to find out what is needed, a target is then set, and when we have the funds in place a purchase is made. The equipment is then presented to the hospital.

2017 is the 20th anniversary of the charity's formation. We will be marking this with a series of events throughout the next 12 months. The celebrations started with with a Cymanfa Ganu on 12th October 2017 which was enjoyed by a large audience.

In 2006 Neath Port Talbot Cancer Challenge was presented with the Queens Award, the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK, to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups across the UK, to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
